Quarantined away from city
Ketaki Bagchi of New Town's BA Block has been in quarantine in Delhi for a week now. She does not have the dreaded virus but the government is taking no chances as she is just back from the Middle East. Bagchi, who retired as head of the ophthalmology department of Calcutta National Medical College, shares her experience -
My daughter is pursuing research in Israel and I had gone to visit her in early March. But the Covid-19 count rose so fast and high that I felt it prudent to return home. The Indian government declared March 22 as the last day it would allow international flights to land and my flight landed in Delhi airport at 7.30am March 22.
The airport was crowded like nobody's business.
